Alistair Milne Documents Coinbase Exchange’s Slowed Growth Rates in 2018

Alistair Milne Shows Coinbase Slowed Down its Growth Rates The recognized cryptocurrency investor and entrepreneur Alistair Milne, wrote a Tweet in which he shows the latest data about Coinbase’s growth. Coinbase is one of the most important companies in the cryptocurrency world and it provides services to over 25 million users all over the world. Coinbase Growth Update:– added ~5million users in the last 6 months, now have 25mil– average of ~25,000 users/day is comparable to mid-2017Data here: https://t.co/R9B63J2d6Q#bitcoin pic.twitter.com/MITLacwC5L — Alistair Milne (@alistairmilne) October 3, 2018 According to this data, in the last 6 months, Coinbase has registered an increase in the number of new users. From March 14, 2018, until September 27, 2018, the company has added 5 million new users. Now it is offering services to 25 million users. In this period, the number of new users registered per day was 25380.71. This number is very important since it shows that the platform is receiving fewer users than in October and September 2017. There are some interesting points to mark with these numbers provided by Alistair Milne. The number of users is currently larger than the total Bitcoin supply, capped at 21 million BTC. Supposing that all Coinbase users are active and real, that would mean that they would not be able to purchase a whole Bitcoin if they’d like to do it. Of course, several Twitter users have marked that not all of them are active and not all of these accounts are real. However, the growth experienced during the last year was impressive. At the end of November 2017, the exchange was receiving over 100,000 new users per day. The same happened on November 2nd and 7th. This growth was clearly linked to the price surge that Bitcoin had at the end of the last year. In December 2017, Bitcoin reached an impressive $20,000 dollars. However, the price of the famous virtual currency experienced an important drop and now it is being traded close to $6,300 dollars. In the next months, if the number of users continues to grow at the same rate as during the last months, Coinbase could reach 30,000,000 users in the next 6 months. However, everything is possible in the virtual currency world. Volatility is one of the main characteristics of the market, and a bull run could start in the coming months if a Bitcoin ETF is approved.

Ripple’s RippleNet XRP Showcases Real-World Effectiveness: Mercury FX

After partnering up with the firm behind the second largest coin XRP [XRP] Ripple as one of the +200 costumers, Mercury FX announced via their official twitter handle that they transacted their largest payment across RippleNet with a positive conclusion. 1/1 We've made our largest payments across RippleNet using #XRP – 86,633.00 pesos (£3,521.67) from the U.K. to Mexico in seconds. pic.twitter.com/WsHJuZTiOy — Mercury-fx Ltd (@mercury_fx_ltd) January 17, 2019 Using XRP, the firm transferred £3,521.67 or $4,552.41 while they cited that UK based Mustard Foods was able to save £79.17 and 31 hours on the transaction. Mustard Foods could be one of the best examples of the impact of using RippleNet could have as it opened doors to cheaper expenses, quicker orders and faster payments. As covered by John P. Njui on EWN a few days ago, The Ripple company has announced via its website that 13 new financial institutions have joined RippleNet thus propelling the number of total global customers to over 200. RippleNet currently operates in 40 countries across 6 continents. Out of the 13 aforementioned financial institutions, 5 are confirmed as using XRP to source instant liquidity for their cross border payments. The are JNFX, SendFriend, Transpaygo, FTCS and Euro Exim Bank. By the end of this year [2018], major banks will use xRapid as a liquidity tool. By the end of next year [2019], I would certainly hope that we will see…in the order of magnitude…of dozens. But we also need to continue to grow that ecosystem…grow the liquidity. – Brad Garlinghouse The success behind the team from Ripple could be standing by their marketing strategy and future plans of making the financial industry a better place to be. While not displacing traditional banking systems but helping them make payments cheaper and faster, it is finding its way to take spotlight in the crypto-verse.

BRD Wallet Expands Crypto User Access Across Europe With Coinify Partnership

Coinify, a European-based financial platform that provides a wallet, trading and payment processing solution, has announced that they are integrating BRD Wallet into their platform to deliver BRD wallet access to users across the European region.Specifically, the partnership provides access to virtual currencies, like bitcoin, to 34 countries across the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA). The SEPA region is a collection of member states in Europe who are part of a payment system that simplifies bank transfers denominated in EUR. The launch is also enabled largely in part by Coinify’s newly rebranded trading solution for wallet partners.Customers will now be able to use BRD Wallet to “purchase bitcoin at cost-efficient rates with SEPA bank transfers” within Coinify’s trading platform. With BRD integration, customers will also retain control over their private keys while using Coinify.Essentially, this provides a large number of users with an efficient and secure way to buy bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, and then allows them to immediately store it in a manner where they control what happens to their money. Typically, a user will entrust the custody of their private keys to a centralized exchange while they are waiting for trades to be executed and sometimes for much longer than that.Aaron Lasher, co-founder and chief strategy officer at BRD, highlighted the advantages of the integration for security-focused users of the Coinify platform.“We like exchanges and think security will get better in the future, but by using our integrated purchase and trading solutions, you get to keep your funds under your control 99 percent of the time, and only put them at a slightly higher risk for a short period when you make the exchange,” Lasher told Bitcoin Magazine.“Using a non-custodial wallet means that you and you alone control your funds. It’s similar to having physical cash in a (highly secure) safe at home. Only in this case, we provide our customers a digital safe (the BRD wallet) that they can keep in their pocket and carry along. Nobody else in the world has access to your funds but you, and nobody can stop you from sending or receiving funds.”Integrating a wallet that allows users to own their funds and seamlessly make trades on a platform like Coinify could help to push bitcoin adoption forward."The financial industry is ripe for disruption and we see bitcoin and the other virtual currencies as the future of payments,” said Rikke Stær, chief commercial officer at Coinify, told Bitcoin Magazine. “At Coinify, we have experienced first-hand the rising adoption of bitcoin and working with BRD as a user-friendly, decentralized wallet will only encourage the global reach of the currency."“Since launching as the first iOS bitcoin wallet in the App Store over 4 years ago, we’ve grown tremendously in North America,“ Adam Traidman, CEO and co-founder of BRD, said in a statement. “Europe will be strategic in the next phase of BRD’s global growth, and the partnership with Coinify will ensure our success in this crucial endeavour.”In August 2018, Canadian-based Coinberry exchange launched a similar BRD integration, allowing users to quickly and seamlessly buy, deposit and withdraw bitcoin on the Coinberry platform, while keeping control of their keys at all times.
